Situated just off the main route from Botha-Bothe to Oxbow and Mokhotlong, the Liphofung Nature Reserve features a large cave overhang in the Clarens sandstone. Once a Bushman shelter and later used by King Moshoeshoe I, the founder of the Basotho nation, the cave features stone-age rock paintings as well as rich archaeological deposits.

A cultural and historical site of great importance, Liphofung has been developed with the focus on cultural education and the preservation of the rock paintings, as well as the legacy of early Basotho history of the area. Local guides are available to interpret the historical, cultural and natural significance of the site and the area as a whole, while cultural displays, such as traditional dancing, may also be enjoyed. There is a site museum and visitors┬┤ facilities include a craft outlet and a playground

Besides the cultural and historical aspects of the site there are also various interesting geological features to be seen in the area. The nearby Moteng valley provides a valuable opportunity to view the traditional Basotho lifestyle.
